MONTHLY UPDATE | January 2022
Student Ministry Family,

Happy New Year! Getting to see so much of each other in December was a lot of fun. I hope and trust you had a meaningful and fun Christmas and New Year's, and you're ready to jump back into life together!

Winter Youth Summit is this weekend - sign up if you haven't yet!

And we're back to our regular schedule with Sunday Morning Bible Study, Student Growth Groups, and The Brook all rolling this month.

We could use your help to provide donuts on Sunday mornings and dinner on Sunday nights.

As always, if there are ways I or our Student Ministry team can better come alongside your family as we all grow as disciples of Jesus, please let us know.

I'm looking forward to a fantastic year together!

In Christ,

P.S. - This Sunday while many of us are away at WYS, it is Deacon Ordination - SMBS @ 9 a.m. & Combined Worship at 10 a.m.
